Frequently Asked Questions

CROSSFIT SEEMS EXPENSIVE. IS IT WORTH IT?

What CrossFit offers is not your typical gym experience. While our rates are comparable to any group fitness classes, the results you’ll achieve are unparalleled. Membership fees are applied toward equipment and facility costs, as well as the expertise of the Certified CrossFit Trainer coaching each and every class you’ll participate in.

Your typical gym experience relies on you knowing what exercises to do, and for you to have the self-discipline and motivation to do it on your own. Very little guidance accompanies the standard gym membership, which usually results in boredom, injury and lackluster results. CrossFit offers personal training at a fraction of the cost. Our members love it! Try a class, FREE!


WHY DO YOUR MEMBERS LIKE CROSSFIT SO MUCH?

Our members love CrossFit because the workouts are constantly varied, we make a point of demonstrating each movement before the WOD begins, and incorporate stretching at the beginning and end of class to assist with a faster recovery following the workout. We have a lot of fun in and out of the gym, and our community is something we take great pride in!


I HAVEN’T WORKED OUT IN A LONG TIME (OR, I’M RECOVERING FROM AN INJURY). WILL CROSSFIT BE TOO HARD FOR ME?

CrossFit is designed to be challenging for all, but every workout can be scaled or modified to suit any fitness level or injury. What that means is whether you are new or a veteran CrossFitter, you can do the same workout, but the workout is scaled according to each athlete’s fitness level. We teach our members how to scale and modify workouts in all of our workouts, and our coaches always provide modifications. Reach out and let us know you’re interested!


DO I NEED TO BE IN SHAPE TO TRY CROSSFIT?

No! People come to CrossFit to get healthy! We will start you out slowly by helping you scale the workouts to your own fitness level. We can decrease the amount of weight or get rid of the weight completely. We can lower the number of rounds or repetitions you will do. We can also modify the exercises to match your level of fitness. Then, as you get more experience, we can modify again to keep it challenging.


DO I NEED SPECIAL CLOTHING OR EQUIPMENT?

All you need are comfortable clothes, training/gym/running shoes, and a water bottle.  We provide everything else you will need.

Your clothes should allow a full range of motion. With regard to footwear, any type of athletic shoes will suffice, however some people prefer flat soled training shoes (less heel than common running shoes), as well as Olympic Lifting shoes for those days when we’re weightlifting.


I’M NOT SURE IF I WANT TO COMMIT TO A CROSSFIT MEMBERSHIP. CAN I JUST DROP IN TO TRY OUT A CLASS?

YES!  Let us know you’re interested, and we’ll work with you to schedule a time to drop in and try or observe a class. Sign up now for a free class!


I’M VISITING THE AREA. CAN I DROP IN TO A CLASS WHEN I’M IN TOWN?

We welcome visitors from other CrossFit boxes! Please sign up in advance, or reach out to let us know you’re interested in joining us while you’re in town.
